On layover in Oxted, RT4779 is joined by RF539 off the 494.

 

Leatherhead

STLs finished on the 65 in November 1949 (mostly ancient ones), whilst Leatherhead's second batch of RTs arrived in January 1949 for route 468.  RTs and STLs would therefore have met, both in Leatherhead and, as here, in Chessington.

 

Staines

RF486 ran the delightfully-rural 224 at Staines, seen here in Horton.

LBM Members' Day

RF486, which worked the 219 when based at Kingston in 1961-65 (see here), returned to BAC Weybridge Works (or Brookands Museum, as part of the site now is) for LBM members' day in March.

 

Various old crocks were lined up at Leatherhead at lunch time.  RT4779 enjoyed revisiting her youth.
